More dazzling displays of jewellery from a weekend of red carpet action in Cannes

It's been a weekend of premieres and parties at Cannes Film Festival, with jewels comprised of emeralds, snakes and flowers ruling the red carpet.

Actress Jennifer Lawrence wore a pair of octagonal-cut emerald and pear-shaped white diamond drop earrings from Chopard’s Red Carpet Collection at the Cannes Film Festival 2013.

It's been a busy weekend of premieres, parties and priceless jewels in Cannes. Hitting the red carpet for the world premiere of hubby Justin Timberlake's new movie, 'Inside Llewyn Davis', Jessica Biel stole his thunder - in the best possible way - in a swirling applique Marchesa dress and diamond and emerald studded Bulgari snake coiled seductively around her neck. The Serpenti necklace is one of the Italian jewellery house's best-known creations, but Jessica makes it look as fresh as the day it was launched more than 70 years ago.

Jennifer Lawrence has already mastered the art of making an entrance on the red carpet, and she was her usual beaming self at the premiere of Jimmy P. (Psychotherapy of a Plains Indian). Dressed in strapless Dior, she kept her décolletage jewel-free and instead opted for statement emerald earrings and a whopping emerald ring by Chopard.

Floral jewels have proved a pretty trend on the Cannes red carpet this year. Socialite Paris Hilton and actress Delphine paraded some impressive Avakian diamonds over the weekend, set into elaborate earrings and a ring, while Kirsten Dunst kept things nice and chic in Chanel Camélia earrings.

Elsewhere, there have been statement earrings aplenty, colourful Indian jewels from Amrapali, Jane Fonda looking fabulous in fuschia - including her Chopard jewels - and Geordie beauty Cheryl Cole detracting the attention from her overly fussy maroon gown with a ravishing de Grisogono ring set with a 25ct brown-orange diamond.
